Re: Just Lost Job...What Should I Do?
sorry to hear about your job loss. I know it must be tough. For about two years I was living on SSI . SSI is for people with disability who have never paid into the social security system. SSDI is for people with disability who have worked in the past. You might be able to get SSDI for help with your income.
as far as medication goes haloperidol is just as good a drug as the newer antipsychotics and only costs $6 at walmart with a prescription. I have to take it with benztropine, the generic version of cogentin. It works well for me. I also take some herbal meds like passionflower, skullcap, and others. They help me to feel calm and sleep at night most of the time, but they are not cheap
I don't know if this has helped but I hope you will find your way.
